Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Truly a gem!

    "Our stay at Casa Sophia was simply outstanding. The house is spacious and luxurious, and the scenery is to die for. Monkeys and wildlife abound and the people in Manuel Antonio are some of the friendliest anywhere. I can't imagine having to stay at a hotel after staying in paradise at Casa Sophia. Vanessa, our concierge did an outstanding job arranging and changing activities for us. I can't say enough good things about this place. I would highly recommend it!!!!"

  • Casa del Sol was great!

    "We recently spent a week at Casa del Sol in charming Manuel Antonio. The experience was wonderful! We traveled with two teenage boys, who loved having the private pool just a few steps from our door, and we took advantage of it many times a day. We also loved having the beautiful view of the Pacific coast from many rooms of the home as well as from the pool. And because Casa del Sol is located on top of a hill, it is among the tree tops which makes for the best wildlife watching. We had regular visits from toucans and monkeys, which was such a thrill. Our concierge Gary gave us great recommendations on where to shop and eat in town, and his recommendations were spot on. We especially enjoyed the restaurants Agua Azul and El Wagon, which both had great views and food. If you’re looking to catch your American sports teams in action, Sanchos has most of the sports-on-demand channels. Nancy was our cleaning lady, and she was simply the best. Very pleasant and kind, and thorough! The first thing she’d do when she arrived (often before the boys were awake) was sweep all the fallen leaves and debris from the pool and outdoor area so that it was in pristine condition by the time we hit the pool. There was also a pool maintenance man who stopped by early every day. We rented a vehicle while in Costa Rica, and because of the steep pitch of the driveway going up the hill, I’d highly recommend a 4 wheel drive. From Casa del Sol, the drive to the beach and Manuel Antonio National Park was only about 5 minutes. We’d highly recommend Casa del Sol to friends who are travelling to Manuel Antonio!"

  • Awesome place

    "This place is really nice. We stayed there with two families and it worked very well. Lots of room, everything was new and in great condition, and the view is phenomenal. Also had great support checking in/out and booking local activities. One note: The place is quite close to town, but not a great walk since the road down is steep, narrow and busy."

  • WOW

    "I knew from the pictures that the house would be spectacular, but it exceeded my expectations. My jaw dropped when I saw it--especially the veranda. It's hard to get a sense of the layout from the pictures, but if you start at one end of the outdoor area there's the pool and hot tub, then a dining table, a huge comfy sofa and chairs looking out at the ocean, a bar-height table, the pool table, another dining table looking out at the town and mountains, and then the 3rd bedroom. The inside of the house is great--nice-size rooms, en suite bathrooms, attractive furnishings--but we only went inside to sleep or use the kitchen. It's all about the deck and the view. No matter what activities we had planned, we started each day with a swim and coffee looking out at the ocean. The pool was fantastic--shallow (which was fine with us--it kept the water on the warm side) with pretty blue tiles and surrounded by tropical plants. Very private. The hot tub didn't get any warmer than the pool, and if you turn the jets on, beware of where you sit...there's a suction port that will leave a hickey on your back. The master bedroom was beautiful, looking out at the pool and a slice of ocean. Very peaceful and quiet. My only complaint was that the bed was listed as a queen, but it was a double...a little tight for two people. We really appreciated the AC and fans in every room, with remote controls. The best part of the house: the pool table! When you're traveling with teenagers, it helps to have something to distract them from their devices and get the family playing together. It's a good-quality table, too, with a light over it (and fans). We didn't see any wildlife other than flying critters (butterflies, hummingbirds, and parakeets) and the ever-present iguana, who basks in various places on the property. The housekeeper, Margarita, was awesome. She kept the place spotless and picked up after us, even doing our laundry without being asked. And Hazel, the concierge, was amazing. She was responsive and had great advice on everything from activities to car rental. As other reviewers have mentioned, the drive up to the house is a bit hairy...tight turns and very steep. Our 4WD could handle it, but the vans that picked us up for our activities could not. We definitely picked the right house. We started talking about our return visit before we even left! Thanks, Hazel!"
